The FIR has been registered under section 505(1) (b)(with intent to cause fear) and 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by the public servant) of the Indian Penal Code at Kotwali police station.
The Superintendent of Police has said that this is an attempt to fume the community as the pamphlets were carrying objectionable content that may result in communal clashes. The probe into the matter is being done. The pamphlets have been found in large numbers and it reflects that it’s an attempt to disturb the peaceful environment. Police have stated that a large number of pamphlets have been found in a communally sensitive area.
Hafiz Saeed has been designated as a terrorist by the United Nations. The UN announced a 10 million dollar bounty on his head. He was recently convicted by Pakistan court in two terror funding cases and slapped with a prison sentence of five and half years and a fine of 15,000 rupees in each case.
Hafiz Saeed-led JuD is believed to be the front organization for the LeT which is responsible for carrying out the 2008 Mumbai terror attack which claimed the lives of 166 people.
